LEHIGH CO. PENNA. 1750-1764

COMMUNICANT MEMBERS, MAY,1750 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran congregation, familiarly known as the
"Blue Church", was the first of that denomination organized within the
present limits of Upper Saucon township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.
The land on which the present church stands,(third erected) was warrented
to Conrad Walp in January of 1737, and it is claimed that the
congregation was organized a few years later.  However, in 1745, the 
Rev. H. M. Muhlenberg was notified that the congregation had erected a
church and school-house. These records have been copied exactly as written.
